Tomodachi Collection: New Life  



Gay marriage present in Nintendo's latest 3DS hit

Tomodachi Collection: New Life reportedly features a bug which allows male characters to engage in same-sex relationships. Male couples can marry, raise children, and even bathe together in the Nintendo's latest bestseller.

These same liberties do not appear to extend to female characters. Similarly, same-sex relationships weren't an option for either gender in New Life's predecessor, which released for Nintendo DS back in 2009.

The life simulation title has shifted 758,575 units to date, reigning supreme atop Japanese charts since it launched on April 18. Many players are excited at the proposition of same-sex relationships in the game, driving a number of them to purchase the title as a result.

According to one fan, Nintendo customer support is aware of the issue and plans to the patch the game. Whether that means letting girls join the fun or removing the feature entirely, well, I suppose we will just have to wait and see.

Cuuute: A weapon shop game about potatoes

Games about managing weapon shops are still novel enough conceptually and satisfying enough mechanically that they don't need much window dressing to draw me in. Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! has a cutesy art style and offb...more

Look at this bushel of happiness on the PoPoLoCrois Farm Story Japanese cover

Okay, I know no one cares that much about farm sims or things like that these days unless they're teeming with in-app purchases. Or PoPoLoCrois, for that matter. But for some reason, I really like both. I also really like the...more
